Oxbridge Success

Friday 12 January 2018

Congratulations to the 14 Salopians who have received offers from Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

It is notable that once again this year, the successes are spread across a very wide range of subject areas. 

"It’s great to see that so many of our Salopians have been rewarded for serious effort and endeavour," said Maurice Walters, Deputy Head (Academic). "We’re especially pleased to be reporting back on successes across the whole range of academic disciplines, with pupils receiving offers to read English, PPE, Geography, the Sciences, Languages, History, Engineering and Classics and we remain absolutely committed to providing a fully rounded education which plays to the talents and enthusiasms of all pupils, whatever their interests may be. We hope our boys and girls are justly proud of their efforts and wish them all the best as they prepare for their all-important A Level examinations."
